    Default Possible taxi fraud?

    A friend of mine was sitting in his vehicle in a parking lot with the window down and talking on his cell phone. A young guy, wearing trendy clothes and a backpack, comes up an says "Call me a cab". My friend tells him that he is on the phone. So this young guy stands there rolling his eyes like this is some great inconvenience to him. After about 20 seconds my friend looks at him again, still on the phone, and says "What?" The guy again says "Call me a cab". Again my friend says he is on the phone. Then the young guy says "I am not asking. I am telling you" My friend then tells him to F-off. To which the young man replies "You are rude" and walks away.

    Question is, has anyone heard of something like this? Hard to believe that a guy wearing good clothes with gold chains and a backpack doesn't have a cell phone. Is it possible that he was hoping my friend would order the cab so that he could run out on the cab fare when he got to his destination? This way the only contact the cab company would have is my friend.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    More likely he wanted to steal the phone when he looked down to dial the number

    Just one of those situations that doesn't smell right, fuck off was the correct response.

    If your friend wasn't in a car I would have assumed pickpocket by someone else behind him.

    Maybe someone else was on the other side of the car to open door and grab something. Old trick.

    Was his passenger window open?

    Or, did he look to see if he plate was still on?

    Outside of what OP suggested, that's all I can think of.

    maybe he expected you to call the cab and then he'd have to somehow use your phone to explain something to the cab company and then he'd take off with the phone?

    Or maybe just an entitled little fuckwad.

    cab company has no proof thats who actually got in the car, the cabs dont exactly card you to get in the car to verify you're the person who called.

    I swear that this is a new trend of trying to get people to beat you up by harassing them so you can sue them.

    I had my own run in with an idiot like this in Van last year, I ended up shoving the guy, and the cops showed up like 10 minutes later after being fed a total BS story about what went down.

    You have to be really weary of Millennials these days, they play by a totally different set of rules. They know the second you get into a physical fight, a dozen cell phones are going to be capturing it from every angle... while the harassment leading up to it will be ignored. If it ain't on video, it didn't happen, that is SJW 101.

    The op is parnoid and delusional if he looks at life and sees a scam at every thing he does in life.

    This stranger said hello to me. What sort of scam is this?!? Someone looked at me weird in the mall... this guy was dressed nice in a suit. Is this a new scam? Whats he trying to do!! Help me im scared!

    Some guy really needed a cab and didnt have a phone... pretty simple isnt it?
